Work for PLUS
PLUS tutors and facilitators are undergraduate and graduate students who have previously excelled in a given course (3.3 B+ final course grade or higher), have sophomore standing, maintain a 3.0 B or higher GPA, and wish to assist their peers. PLUS tutor and facilitator positions are paid for their time assisting students and attending regular training sessions.
Tutors and facilitators are hired and supervised by PLUS staff and fulfill particular roles and responsibilities. Tutors and facilitators are required to attend weekly training sessions and participate in a certification program through the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA).
Facilitators must also be in regular contact with the faculty member teaching the course they facilitate a group for. In the first one to two weeks of the quarter, they will work with the faculty member to set up a time to promote the PLUS Group in class and poll students regarding the best dates/times to hold weekly sessions. Facilitators are not required to attend class lectures or participate in in-class activities.
Please reach out to PLUS staff about any openings for winter 2021.
